Our Place In Space - Coming in 2022

By Andrew Moore 3rd December 2021

NI Science Festival is delighted to be part of the team lead by The Nerve Centre to be presenting Our Place In Space next year as part of UNBOXED: Creativity in the UK 2022!

Our Place in Space is a playful experiment that asks: What is the difference between 'US' and 'THEM'? What happens to your perspective when you look back at earth from space?

Centred around an epic scale model of the solar system designed by the artist Oliver Jeffers, Our Place in Space combines a three-dimensional sculpture trail, interactive AR app and exciting learning and events programmes.

The Northern Ireland team behind Our Place in Space is led by the Nerve Centre and includes artists Oliver Jeffers and Die Hexen, award-winning scientist Professor Stephen Smartt from the Astrophysics Research Centre at Queen's University Belfast, as well as National Museums NI, Big Motive, Taunt, Microsoft, Jeffers & Sons, University of Cambridge, Dumbworld, Live Music Now, Little Inventors, and Urban Scale Interventions.
